Nets Sign Jordan Williams

Jordan Williams (2009-11), a second round draft pick by the New Jersey Nets, signed a deal with the team over the weekend. While the Nets haven't released the details, the Waterbury, Connecticut, Republican-American reports that it is a two-year, guaranteed contract:
Late Friday afternoon, Williams and the Nets came to an agreement on a two-year, guaranteed contract, wrapping up a whirlwind two weeks for the 6-10, 260-pound forward. [...]

His two-year deal was hammered out by his agent, Andy Miller. Details were not released, but the website reported it was for just under $500,000. [...]

For Jordan Williams and his family, the signing ended one journey and launched another.

"When one of your kids reaches his or her goal," Leron Williams said Friday night, "it's hard to put it into words. He started this journey when he was 3 years old, but for him this is just the beginning. He wants to have a long and successful career."
